Samuel L. Jackson Joins “Spider-Man: Far From Home”

Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders will co-star in Spiderman: Far From Home. 

The duo will be joining Tom Holland in the upcoming Spiderman sequel to Homecoming, which is currently filming in Europe.

Jackson will reprise his role as Nick Fury and Smulders will reprise the role of Maria Hill. Interestingly, both characters were killed by Thanos’ Infinity Stone-powered snap in a climatic Avengers: Infinity War scene. 

Jackson’s character is now confirmed to appear in at least two movies next year, Far From Home and Captain Marvel. According to Vulture, Jackson will be digitally de-aged for the 1990s set Captain Marvel and will portray Fury before the eye patch era. Fury’s participation in the sequel will be the first time Fury will share scenes with Spiderman alongside his oft comrade-in-arms, Hill. 

The feature will also see the return of Marisa Tomei as Peter’s Aunt May, Zendaya as his friend M.J., and Jacob Batalon as his best friend Ned. Playing the villain is Jake Gyllenhaal who will portray the iconic Mysterio.

Spiderman: Far From Home premieres July 5, two months after Captain Marvel, out March 8.
